I really didn’t do much this weekend. I did watch a little of the 24 hours at Daytona, but not as much as I did last year. I guess I was distracted by the Winter X games. I don’t know why these things fascinate me so. I guess when someone takes a snowmobile up a ramp and do a flip with it I guess that’s exciting to me. Postman and I were watching some of the games yesterday and got caught up in the event called Skier X. Bascially you have skiers racing down the slope at a very fast pace. Kind of like NASCAR on snow, but without all the pit stops, roar of the engines, etc. There were several hard crashes yesterday at the next to the last jump on the course. These crashes were just your typically crashes. These are knock the crap out of you, need good drugs, ouch kind of crashes. These are the kind that will definitely leave a mark. These are the kind that end up on Sportscenter. This was way better than watching golf and Postman playing video games…yawn.
This is the week all the Superbowl hype begins–enough already. Who cares if Brady hurt his ankle and is or is not wearing some sort of boot on his foot. I usually don’t watch all the pre-pre-pre game stuff on Superbowl Sunday. I am all about the game. That’s it. I feel the same way about the Daytona 500. Get to the race already. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to see the Duals again this year. I thought about taking off Valentine’s day to spend some time with Postman, but unfortunately that whole J-O-B thing gets in the way. Plus I can’t even listen to the duals on NASCAR.com either because of some training thing I have to be at ALL FREAKIN’ DAY! I mean seriously people 2 full days to learn this stuff. Come on now…what could possibly take that long that two FULL days are needed. One day maybe, but two! Guess I will find out soon enough.
I have to agree with Postman over at Inside the Shell. I am in the wrong professon. 200/hour for working? But hey sometimes working in the government has it’s benefits too. It seems like you can hold you job for a long time and the only way you can get fired is if you really screw up BAD…well, unless you are elected.
Have a great one!
